The Los Angeles Chargers have signed kicker Caleb Sturgis to a two-year contract, the organization announced on Friday.

Sturgis has played in 62 career games over the course of his five seasons. The 2013 fifth-round selection has connected on 81 percent (111-of-136) of his field goals. Sturgis spent the past three seasons (2015-17) with Philadelphia after spending his first two years with Miami.

Sturgis missed the majority of the 2017 season due to injury. In 2016, the Florida native put together his best season, hitting 85 percent (35-for-41) of his field goal tries, including a career-long 55-yarder, and totaled a career-high 135 points. At the time, Sturgis’ 35 made field goals in 2016 were the most made field goals in Eagles history. As a rookie for Miami in 2013, he registered 111 points, including 11 in his NFL debut, and was named All-Rookie by the Professional Football Writers of America. Sturgis set career records over his four-year career at Florida in made field goals (70) and field goal attempts (88).
